10 Highest Paying Affiliate Marketing Programs in Kenya

6 Shares

This is a comprehensive guide to the best affiliate marketing programs in Kenya.

Affiliate marketing is one of the easiest and most common method to make passive income online in Kenya. There are very many affiliate marketing programs in the world with the giants being the Amazon associates, Commission Junction, Clickbank, ShareAsale and LinkShare just to mention a few.

Today, I will be focusing on programs that are only specific to Kenya. That is, affiliate programs that are owned by Kenyan companies and probably pay using local methods such as M-PESA

You will agree with me that many Kenyans have problem with other international affiliate marketing programs or networks. Some of these programs do not even allow affiliates of Kenyan nationality. It is for example, very difficult to start earning with the Amazon Associates as a Kenyan.

You need to put in a lot of work at beginning before you start making any commissions. You need to work on your SEO, including intensive link building strategies and other kinds of exposure.

This of course applies to all kinds of affiliate marketing but with the Kenyan market which is not as saturated yet, your experience as an affiliate will be smoother.

If you are one those people that feel they are being left behind by these international affiliate marketing giants and think that you need to be closer home and start making some passive income, this is just the article for you.

Go through the list and see if you can find an affiliate program that best suits your needs.


1.JUMIA AFFILIATE PROGAM

Jumia Kenya is one of the fastest growing online retailers in Kenya. It is also probably one of the most popular. Jumia Kenya launched its affiliate program in 2015 to give blog owners and social media users an opportunity to make passive income online by promoting their products.

Since then, thousands of Kenyan publishers and social media lovers have signed up for the program and are probably making a few commissions. This is so far one of the best affiliate marketing programs in Kenya.

The good thing with the Jumia affiliate program is that you are allowed to promote your links anywhere without the risk of being banned from the program.
